Evaluate the need for accountability and its importance to disaster management

Disasters and armed conflicts cause severe long-term consequences around the world. Addressing public and civil accountability can help reduce the effects of these disasters.

On this course, you will have the opportunity to consider disaster interventions by looking at the organisations involved and the people who work in them, and what they do to deliver effective, professional interventions in disaster risk reduction and humanitarian situations.

What topics will you cover?

  • Discuss how organisational processes and practices outside of disaster intervention organisations might be used to improve interventions
  • Introduce governance as a set of interconnected organisational systems, processes and external architecture for implementing projects
  • Use a fictional example to investigate what it takes to provide an effective, efficient and appropriate intervention
